MP George Galloway has defended comments referring to insurgents in Iraq as "martyrs", saying he has not put British troops at risk.
"I said countries occupied by UK and US troops are being raped by them. Jerusalem and Baghdad are in the hands of foreigners who are doing their will. "The people stirring up hatred for our troops are those who put them in Iraq, not the likes of us who want to bring them home to their families.
